Aren't those "few hits" the reason why he should be playing more?
Success may indeed be arbitrary; however, isn't it the best way to gauge playing time when one is looking for wins?
Success in Mesoraco's case would hinge on not only his own success, but that of Hanigan and the starting pitchers both catchers handle.
